Since Smokey is having a bad mommy and bad husband week, I thought we could share our bad Mommy days. Plus, my tatoo really, really itches and I am trying to get my mind off of it and work is so boring.
Here is mine from a couple of weeks ago: I had been in the ER with Alex for an asthma attack. I almost fell apart and sobbed on the respiratory therapist's shoulder and Alex tore out his IV. It was a really bad night. Then, I took he and Zak to the ped for an hour visit otherwise known as hell on Earth. Alex had a sinus infection, an ear infection and a respiratory infection. Zak had strep throat. I left and got $100.00 worth of prescriptions, had a friend watch the kids so I could get my thirty hours in and came home and collapsed.
Zak comes walking in complaining that his head is bleeding. I look at the clock and think "Well, we can go back to the Ped. if we need to." I check his head and it is bleeding in the back but not a whole lot. I half heartedly asked him what had happened because I am rather terrified at the answer. He said a rock had hit it. I thought he was throwing a rock in the air and it fell on his head. I can't resist so I ask later. He found a string and tied it around the rock and was slinging it around....until it hit him on the back of the head. So, I have one genius of a child that almost knocked himself out and is complaining about his throat and another one that is hiding because I brought the nebulizer out.
I want to win the lottery so I can hire a nanny and a personal assistant.
